Happy Happy mum's day!!

we are all so happy that auntie Elle has come to stay with us for the weekend... is a very hungover auntie snuggling up in my new quilt!! I was looking forward to putting miss Elle to work modelling a few dresses before I sent them off to their new homes... BUT
GUESS WHAT?? - auntie is now too skinny to model my dresses! once again I turned the camera on myself to get a few pictures...

LOOK!!! buttons!

...this is the prettiest fabric I have ever worked with. It is RIDICULOUSLY CUTE!

... a small person

AND a big person....

...this will be for sale as a ready to ship in about 20 minutes in my etsy shop

I knew that choosing the right buttons was an important decision, so I just randomly grabbed ten out of my button jar and hoped for the best... first day-care-made hand print card from Zavian

MY QUILT!!!!! I used a lovely old green flannelette sheet for the binding. It has lost all of its fluff and is now smooth and snuggly...

...the most amazing sheet fabric on the back - this beauty was new in the package and just divine...

I quilted it diagonally from edge to edge to make a cross-hatched sort of pattern - I'm sure there is a technical name for it but I do not know it...

I LOVE IT!! long people in bed


I was so happy to be woken up with a big kiss from my little, and a new set of cookie cutters for 'ninja bread men'. Brekky at the local cafe for eggs Florentine and bacon, banana bread, yummy coffee and organic local wood fired fruit toast.


Hope you are having a lovely mothers day - and Kudos to the gentleman who just placed an order in my shop for his wife's mothers day pressie - he even chose the fabric - WHAT A STAR!!
